Cupcake Cumpleaños

Wow!  I haven't posted in a long time!  My husband and I wanted to save on energy costs this summer and not turn on our AC, but that was keeping me out of my scrap room.  I finally broke down and turned it on a bit so I could get a birthday card done for my mother-in-law.



I made this gatefold card a little differently shaped by welding a scalloped rectangle to either side of a regular rectangle on my Gypsy.  That scalloped rectangle (from Accent Essentials) is the same shape I used in the center, as the base behind the cupcake.  The cupcake is from Smiley Cards, I just got rid of the face because I was afraid it was too small to cut out well.  I made some score lines on the wrapper and ran the cupcake top through the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls folder.  I also decided to put a little bling on the icing so I could try out my new i-rock :)

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
Skipping Stones Design--sketch #86
